Overview – Management Entrance Tests

Successful management is one of the most essential elements of any organization, industry, or business, as well as other professional areas. Earning a degree in management prepares graduates for higher wages, positions of greater responsibility, and more firm job security. 
In India, Management education is less than 50 years old. Today, we have more than nine hundred institutions offering Master’s program. In the past decade, growth in MBA programs has been 800% owing to a spectacular growth and rising demands of an ever-increasing population.  
The critical factor in getting admission in a MBA course at a reputed business school is doing exceptionally well in the national level management entrance tests like CAT (Common Admission Test), XAT IIFT, CMAT, MHCET, MAT SNAP, NMAT, and other state level tests such as MHCET, ICET, KCET, GCET etc.

Syllabus & Pattern – Management Entrance Tests

The syllabus for all of these examinations include Quantitative Aptitude, Reasoning ability, Verbal Ability, Vocabulary, Reading Comprehension, Grammar, Data Interpretation, Data Sufficiency and/or General Awareness. Note that there is a significant difference in the level of questions asked in these examinations. Almost all of these examinations are held online starting in the month of October. The past experience tells that an aspirant can not use same approach for all examinations as apart from the level of questions, the weightage given to each of the sections in these examinations is also different. Moreover, in some examinations you have to achieve a minimum cutoff score in each section separately while in others overall cutoff score is considered.
The process of selection does not stop here but the competition gets more intense after one gets through the written examination. If you are eyeing some of the Premier Institutes, the next step is to get through the GD and Interview rounds to get admission into the institution of your choice. Therefore it is necessary make a workable strategy for each of these examinations.
The first and most important step is to crack the written examinations which requires a solid study plan which requires understanding the pattern of examination papers (keeps on changing), knowing the weightage given to various topics and identify your weak areas in every subject. Once you are finished with these you may adopt the following suggested plan to prepare for the examinations:

  • Prepare a time schedule by allocating more time to the subject/areas which you find more difficult. Your schedule must include newspaper reading and watching TV news on a daily basis. Do not forget to make notes of important news. This will boost your preparation for English language, general awareness and even in GD and Interviews at a later stage.
  • Reasoning is very scoring but a tricky topic, so you should prepare it well. To do so, our suggestion is to solve the reasoning practice papers repeatedly.
  • Prepare the quantitative aptitude topics by practicing more and more. Always read the fundamentals carefully before embarking on practice papers. Develop your own short tricks as well as use those available in books or online but do not be depend solely on these as they may not be applicable to all questions. Practice mental calculations regularly. Learn tables by heart.
  • Test yourself by solving the past papers within the time limit.
  • Join a good online test series, if you can afford it.
  • Last but not the least – eat well, sleep well and be relaxed. Always take some time out of your schedule to spend it with your friends, family or in a hobby. You can also include some physical exercise in your schedule as physical fitness will also keep you mentally fit. Remember the old saying “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”.
